Well Owls, it is the last week before the Summer holiday and only 4 days until our wonderful Year 6s leave primary school. What a year together it has been but I hope you all know how proud you have made Mrs Henney and I. You guys really are the best! So, this week because I have spent a lot of time looking at old photographs over the last few weeks (I can’t think why Year 6), I thought I would share some of my highlights with you from the last year. Right, there are so many to choose from but one of my favourite memories is from Shakespeare week and watching you all perform the witches’ speech from MacBeth throwing shoes into your imaginary cauldrons and leaping round! And you say my accents are bad! There were a lot of dodgy witch voices going on that morning! I wonder what tomorrow’s will be?
So, today I have set some ‘normal’ work but tomorrow, as requested by the Year 6s in school, I will be setting some different activities.
And back by popular demand (well one person, thanks Dan), is the daily quiz question:
What is the longest river in the world? What length is it and where is it?
Answer at the bottom of the post.
So, here is today’s work:
1) Spellings – Here are your final spellings to learn before the summer holidays:
Year 5 Term 3B Week 6 Presentation
Year 5 week 6 Cursive Handwriting Practice Sheet
Year 6 Term 3B Week 6 Presentation
Year 6 week 6 Cursive Handwriting Practice Sheet
2)Reading – log onto Reading Eggs and/or read your own book for pleasure.
3)English – complete the activity on BBC Bitesize English for today. The lesson for both Year 5 and Year 6 is called ‘Reading and using texts’.
Year 6, make sure that you have completed your speech for the Leavers assembly on Wednesday.
4)White Rose Maths – Summer Term week 12, day 1:
Year 5 week 12 Lesson-1-Answers-Metric-units
Year 5 week 12 Lesson-1-Metric-units

Happy Monday all,
